July 2nd, 2010
As you may know I’m passionate about cycling, so when the opportunity to go and work as a “super domestique”, driving and assisting my good friend and widely recognised sports photographer Mike Powell on this years Tour De France I jumped at it. Mike is shooting it for a forthcoming book on the tour to be published by PQ Blackwell. It was a great three weeks both exhilarating and exhausting. We missed the first weekend, the first stage we joined it was on the famed “pavé” in the forest of Arenburg.
Of course I was more than happy when Simon Mottram from Rapha offered to post my account of that day was on Rapha’s blog.
